Our Opinion

The Iberostar Laguna Azul is a great luxury resort situated within the resort strip of Cuba. The resort boasts a great array of a la carte and buffet options. The pool and beach area are also fantastic. You will never experience a shortage of lounge chairs. The Iberostar Laguna Azul is a great getaway for couples who are looking for a great place to lounge and relax.

Following in the footsteps of its sister properties, Iberostar Laguna Azul combines beauty and service for the ultimate vacation experience. Beachfront on Varadero's pristine white sands guests can choose from an abundance of water & beach activities or simply lounging and soaking up the sun. Dining is a treat at this property with a sprawling International buffet and 5 charming a la carte bistros including Asian, Caribbean and more. And at the end of day, retreat to plush accommodations filled with modern amenities.

Location: Beachfront, 30 minutes from airport, 20 minutes to Varadero and 105 minutes to Havana.

Went to this resort 5 years ago and it was amazing. This time around i am quite disappointed!!! The hotel is getting older and not much has been done to improve. The water pressure however was not great. The fridge was not working at all. I went to reception and was told it will get fixed that day. When i got back to the room that evening nothing was done. Went back to reception she called the mechanic in front of me and told me he will be there today, when i got back to the room that evening nothing was done again. So i just left it at that, it was however never fixed the whole week i was there. The bathrooms in the lobby and elsewhere other than the rooms are DISGUSTINGLY DIRTY. Not cleaned at all...half the time there was no toilet paper. The pools and the beaches are great. However spent more time at the beach than pool. The food was quite bland and same every single day for breakfast, lunch dinner. They changed 1 or 2 dishes the last 2 days we were there. When you ask for a drink it usually took about half an hour to get. Overall the hotel is getting older and needs lots of improvement to be done to it. I will not be coming back to this hotel. Its best to always search for a newer hotel (5 yrs or less). It's almost as if they give up on the state of the hotel as it's getting older. I've been going to Cuba for the last 9 yrs.

What a disappointing vacation.First the room.The room has not been updated since this resort has opened.Run down and tired looking.There are no black out curtains.So when the sun is up, so are you.When I laid down in the mattress I sank into it. It probably has not been changed in 5 years and is a very poor quality to begin with.Bathroom:The toilet seat seemed to be the size of a potty seat,and did not fit the toilet.There were only 3 bath towels.No hand towels or wash cloths.I called the front desk and they told me they would send up towels, it never happened.The soap was a little bigger than a half a dollar, of which there was 1 for 4 people. We went out and bought a big bar of soap.It seems to be run like a prison, with everything rationed.Also the handle to the balcony door was broken.The buffet:Very poor quality food.The sauce the use for the pizza and pasta is water with a little red color added in, or so it seems that way.They basically have the same food every day with no variation.The final straw came on the last day when I called for a bellman to pick up my luggage.No one answered the phone for 15 minutes after 4 phone calls.I had to go to the lobby to get my luggage picked up.Do yourself a favor, stay away from this resort.

I would go back, but...

I want to start by saying we had a great family vacation at this resort. We have been to Cuba a few times and we know what to expect. With that said, there are definitely some areas this resort needs to pay attention to. The biggest issue is in the Housekeeping department. Although the rooms are clean when you arrive, the amount of care taken slips off during the week. I dont like to have to track down housekeeping on my holidays. We rarely had facecloths, had to ask for TP 2 times, and most of all, restocking the fridge. You must have bottled water in your fridge EVERYDAY. The staff are nice, but they do spend a lot of time joking around with each other, so I wonder if thats why they forget things. (and yes, before you ask, we tipped well from the very first day)... The food is repetitive, but my family managed to find things they liked, and I do think it is getting better... The resort itself is beautiful. staff is quite good and helpful... Lots to do for the entire family (our kids are teenagers)... The Beer is really good, the drinks, not so much, unless you get them from the lobby... The only other complaint is that, compared to the Iberostar we stayed in, in Mexico, we felt we were not informed enough about what was happening in the resort. (maybe because this resort was bigger?)...Anyway, if you want an inexpensive family vacation, I would definitely recommend this resort.

The food wasnt good at all and there were blood in my sheets. The people who worked there were very nice and kind. The drinks at the bar were half melted because there machines were not working well. The pool were nice and clean. The beach is beautiful!
